Wordless Wednesday ~ Marguerite Lysle

Marguerite Lysle (August 13, 1876 - December 25, 1967)
and her younger brother, George Barton Lysle (July 18, 1878 - September 23, 1950)

Marguerite Lysle is my great grandmother and lived her entire life in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. I have written about her husband and children in the 1900-1910 federal censuses, in the 1920 census and in the 1930 census.

Wordless Wednesday is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers, the genealogy community’s resource for blogging. It is used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors.


  1. Sweet picture. Love the wide eyes and impression that Marguerite is looking after George.

  2. I love old pictures. The hairstyles and clothes provide so many clues about the times. And, the children are adorable.

  3. Yes, I love the expressions on the faces of my great grandmother and her younger brother. Thanks for reading and commenting.
